Hummingbird Stories grew out of our love for action, and that we all can make a difference through our choices, actions, and our ways of being in this world.

Action for ourselves, for other human beings, for other animals, and the greater community of live. Actions for this beautiful planet we share, and on which we are temporary visitors.

We are inspired by the work of social, environmental and political activist and Earth Charter Champion Dr. Wangari Maathai.

The book ‘Flight of the hummingbird’ by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas shows that each of us, that every little drop, every action however small, matters.

We joined forces with Earth Charter International to add more and more drops of water by putting the Earth Charter into action in global activities towards optimal wellbeing for animals in human care and for animal care professionals.
We hope you enjoy our Hummingbird Stories.

Do you want to take action, be an changmaker? We highly recommend reading 'Flight of the Hummingbird' by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas.

"Hummingbirds have long been a symbol of wisdom and courage. In this charming story, a hummingbird makes a valiant effort to put out a raging fire that threatens her forest home — trip after trip, her beak is filled each time with just a drop of water. Her efforts show her woodland companions that doing something — anything — is better than doing nothing at all. The hummingbird parable, which originates with the Quechuan people of South America, has become a talisman for environmentalists and activists worldwide committed to making meaningful change. This retelling, enlivened by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas’ fabulous Haida-manga illustrations, is suitable for all ages of would-be activists. Although environmental responsibility often seems like an overwhelming task, The Flight of the Hummingbird shows how easy it is to start and how great the effect could be if everyone just did what they could."
